What’s the point of having a rubber hammer if you never plan to use it?
Longtime UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal, billed as the “Baddest Mother Fucker” when introduced to the pro wrestling crowd during a recent taping of AEW “Dynamite,” sat idly by as American Top Team (ATT) owner Dan Lambert got clobbered for running his mouth.
UFC “champ champ” Amanda Nunes probably could have intervened as well, but I guess that wasn't part of the script. Or maybe UFC doesn’t want its top stars getting injured during a goofy skit that serves no real purpose aside from getting Lambert — a lifelong pro wrestling
mark fan — some cheap heat.
Not as cheap as this, but you get the idea.
Nunes makes her Octagon return as part of the UFC 265 pay-per-view (PPV) event next month in Houston, where she’ll defend her 135-pound strap against veteran bruiser Julianna Pena. Masvidal remains unbooked after consecutive losses to 170-pound champion Kamaru Usman.
